Wall of Sound and Spine and Crown Robbed Last Night

Posted by on Mon, Dec 24, 2012 at 3:03 PM

Last night Wall of Sound record store and Spine and Crown Books suffered a break-in via a kicked-in door and the former business lost its computer and some coins in its till and the latter the iPhone with which it processes purchases. I don't want to tell you what to do, but it might be a nice idea to frequent these excellent indie establishments—both of which need to find new locations by June 2013—and buy something from them this week to help them procure the funds to replace their lost goods.

Happy holidays?

@5 remember orpheum records on broadway of a few years back ? that store was open for, what, something like 15 years and they didn't have an alarm system. never got one. their front door had the same one lock / one key deal you see at most older apartments. they didn't have a back door either. they had a few break ins , but oddly enough nobody ever broke in through that one lock front door. they'd climb the roof behind the store , break the skylight, try to bend the iron grate back, and when they got in after barely recovering anything, they'd squeeze back through the rooftop skylight. you'd probably be surprised at how many small businesses don't have security or insurance because many of them are barely skating by as it is..
but huge suck is the fact that motherfuckers broke in to this place.asswipes !

don't they have to have insurance to cover theft like this? i mean, that shouldn't stop anyone from shopping at both of those fine shops but...insurance, right?

Deal! I was just thinking about a disc I wanted and almost ordered it from iTunes, but I've been trying to support Wall of Sound instead. This seals the deal.

Was credit card information stored in the computer?
